Best Low Cost Cyclonic Filter Vacuum Cleaners
Thomas Multi Cyclone Pro 14
Gone are the days when a vacuum cleaner with a cyclone filter was something unusual. Now such devices are very popular, and their cost is often hardly higher than devices with a garbage bag. For example, Thomas Multi Cyclone Pro 14 is sold in Russian stores for 6-7 thousand rubles. Moreover, this model has a number of advantages over most vacuum cleaners sold for the same money. For example, easy container cleaning is implemented here. A person is only required to press a button, after which all the contents fall into the trash can. At this time, the container itself is held by the handle made of material, pleasant to the touch. Another thing to note is its size, which is quite decent. It seems that a two-liter volume is enough for several cleaning of the entire apartment, even if it consists of three rooms.
Often, budget vacuum cleaners have only two wheels. Here they are supplemented by front rollers, which greatly simplify the avoidance of obstacles. The device also has two very large and convenient buttons. They fulfill the traditional role of turning on the vacuum cleaner and winding up its cord. Well, if you open the lid, you can access the fine filter. It needs to be changed every few years, but this process will not cause any difficulties. Its cost is approximately 500-700 rubles.
Now even the most inexpensive vacuum cleaners come with several attachments at once. Thomas Multi Cyclone Pro 14 is no exception to the rule. Together with it, the customer will receive a 2-in-1 nozzle for cleaning furniture, a nozzle for cleaning floors and carpets, and a crevice nozzle.
The device has a dust container full indicator. It allows you to understand in time that it is time to empty the container. As for the aforementioned power cord, its length is 6 m. The motor of this model is noisy, but not too much. We can safely say that there are noisier vacuum cleaners, especially in this price segment. The motor power is 1800 W. This figure allows the device to suck in dust with great force. The weight of the device is 5.5 kg. There is no doubt that even a fragile girl will be easy to handle with a vacuum cleaner.
Judging by the above, the Thomas Multi Cyclone Pro 14 does not have any particular drawbacks. Unfortunately, this is not the case. It is made of very cheap plastic, which has a very unpleasant odor at first. Also, the owners of the device complain about the strong heating of the vacuum cleaner. It is possible that one day this will lead to engine damage. Someone else will not be satisfied with the lack of a turbo brush.
- A container is used instead of a dust collector;
- Extremely high power;
- Good filters (included – three pieces);
- Supplied with three attachments.
- An unpleasant odor appears after cleaning;
- Heats up too much;
- There is no turbo brush included;
- The hose is not long;
- Flimsy plastic prone to breakage.
Our review continues with an even more affordable vacuum cleaner. For it in Russian stores they ask 6-7 thousand rubles. At the same time, he also has a two-liter container at his disposal. It should be noted that the vacuum cleaner turned out to be a little lighter – the scales under it will show 4.8 kg. This will turn out to be important if an elderly person will do the cleaning with it.
As always, the device received buttons for turning on and winding the power cord. The length of the latter is 6 meters. This is enough to get to the corners of even the largest room.
The vacuum cleaner allows you to choose the suction power. Its reduction is usually required when a child sleeps in the next room. It is incredibly pleasing that the buttons on the handle are used to select the power, and not on the body of the vacuum cleaner. Just do not forget to insert the batteries first, because the signal is transmitted with their help.
The power of the Samsung VC18M31A0 is 1800 W. Not bad! As for the suction power in particular, it reaches 380 watts. The noise level in the maximum mode is 87 dB, which cannot be called some kind of exorbitant parameter.
Despite the low cost, the vacuum cleaner received the Anti-Tangle turbine. This design element prevents wool and hair from getting wrapped around the filter. This is important, because no one wants to change the filter more often because of them.
Well, what can you find fault with? Perhaps, the questions are raised by the equipment. The box with the vacuum cleaner contains only two attachments: the '2 in 1' and the one that serves for cleaning carpets and floors. Most disappointing is the lack of a turbo brush, which does its job much better than conventional nozzles. Buyers also complain about the dust collector mounts. First, the plastic retainer is flimsy. Secondly, when using the vacuum cleaner for the first time, you can accidentally open the lid, spilling some of the contents on the floor. In the future, you will get used to the design, and therefore such incidents will not occur.
Otherwise, this model has no serious drawbacks. Well, won't you expect smooth power control from it? Other inexpensive vacuum cleaners, by the way, do not offer a choice of suction power at all!
- Capacious garbage container;
- Not a very high noise level;
- High power;
- The handle has buttons for changing the suction power;
- Built-in Anti-Tangle turbine;
- Long power cord;
- The vacuum cleaner is not very heavy;
- There is a fine filter.
- Flimsy plastic container lid retainer;
- I would like to get more attachments;
- Not all turbines are working properly.
There are inexpensive vacuum cleaners with a cyclone filter in the company's range LG. They usually sell for a very high price. And only LG VK76A02NTL can be bought for little money, sometimes it is offered for only 5500 rubles! Let's find out what is the reason for such a low price tag.
In fact, everything is very simple. The South Korean manufacturer has significantly reduced the size of the device. At first, you might think that this is good, you do not need to carry a bulky device with you. But later you realize that you would like to get a vacuum cleaner with a larger container. Here, its volume is only 1.5 liters. This means that you need to empty it often enough. However, even a child can handle this task; the process takes a few minutes, if not even seconds.
This model uses a HEPA 11 filter. It sometimes needs to be changed, but this is a problem with all vacuum cleaners existing today. It should also be noted that this device provides only dry cleaning. The motor used here is capable of boasting a power of 2000 watts. When it is working, it provides 380W suction power. Great values! More powerful vacuum cleaners simply do not exist in this segment! At the same time LG VK76A02NTL cannot be called particularly loud. Measurements show that the noise level does not exceed 78 dB.
As expected, the device has a dust container full indicator. There are also two familiar buttons for turning on the device and winding the power cord. The length of the latter, by the way, is only 5 m. And this is not the manufacturer's savings. In such a small vacuum cleaner, a longer wire simply could not fit. However, five meters is quite enough for cleaning any living space.
In terms of equipment LG VK76A02NTL is comparable to the model that opened our selection. This purchase will please you with the same three attachments: a slotted attachment, a furniture attachment, and a floor and carpet brush. Alas, they rarely put a turbo brush in a box for such inexpensive vacuum cleaners.
- A quality filter is used;
- Low noise level;
- Excellent power;
- There is a dust container full indicator;
- Low cost;
- The set includes three attachments.
- No turbo brush;
- Only one color option;
- The container for collecting dust turned out to be not very spacious;
- There is no power regulation;
- When heated, the vacuum cleaner may give off a plastic smell.
Bosch BGS 1U1805
The German company Bosch mainly specializes in very expensive vacuum cleaners. Its range even includes building models that can be connected to power tools! But the German manufacturer still does not forget about ordinary people who do not want to spend any big money. An inexpensive vacuum cleaner called Bosch BGS 1U1805 was released especially for them. It also includes a cyclone filter. Like other devices of this kind, the vacuum cleaner provides only dry cleaning. The difference from many competitors is the suction power regulator located on the body. Its presence allows you not to be afraid for the parquet. Also, reducing the power allows you to reduce the noise emitted by the motor, which is also sometimes very useful.
You can also find a container full indicator on the body. But this is already typical for most vacuum cleaners existing now. As for the motor, it has a power of 1800 watts. The container is not so happy. Its capacity is only 1.4 liters. Nevertheless, this should be enough even for cleaning a large country house.
Another unpleasant feature of the vacuum cleaner is its weight. It reaches 6700 grams! Of course, this is not a record yet. But you can already think about whether to buy such a device for an elderly relative or a fragile girl. You can also complain about a simple filter. Unfortunately, the manufacturer saved money on it by not choosing HEPA.
Otherwise, it is difficult to make any claims to the device. The vacuum cleaner has a familiar telescopic tube. Tall people will find it short, while the rest will definitely not experience any problems. There are also four attachments in the box with the device: small, crevice, furniture, as well as a floor and carpet brush.
Bosch BGS 1U1805 is worth the money that is asked for it. However, you definitely need to be aware of the disadvantages mentioned above. If you do not agree with them to put up with, then it is better to consider the option of buying some other vacuum cleaner.
- A large number of attachments;
- There is a power regulator;
- Not very high noise level;
- There is a dust container full indicator;
- High power;
- Relatively small size.
- Large weight;
- The container could be more spacious;
- Would like to get a longer hose;
- Weak filter;
- No turbo brush.
Best Budget Bag Vacuum Cleaners
The range of the South Korean company Samsung consists of a very large number of different vacuum cleaners. Many of them are quite inexpensive. For example, for Samsung VC24FHNJGWQ they ask about 8 thousand rubles. And this is in the official online store of the manufacturer! In other retail chains, this vacuum cleaner has an even more affordable price tag.
This inexpensive vacuum cleaner has a fairly long hose, telescopic tube and a very massive handle. Batteries can be inserted into the latter, after which power adjustment will become available. Unfortunately, it will not be smooth – at the user's choice, weak, medium and maximum power. Decreasing the parameter simultaneously reduces the noise level. However, even in maximum mode, the device does not make too much noise. The measurements show 75 dB, which is slightly louder than the sounds that the washing machine makes during the spin cycle. And this with a power of 2400 watts!
This model has a dust collector full indicator. He will notify in time that it is time to get rid of the accumulated garbage. A three-liter bag is used as a dust collector. The vacuum cleaner also includes two buttons that are responsible for turning on the device and winding the cord. The length of the latter, by the way, is 7 m. This should be enough even for cleaning a very large room.
Samsung VC24FHNJGWQ has a number of advantages over cheaper vacuum cleaners. First, it uses a HEPA13 filter. You hardly need to talk about how good he is. Secondly, this is a rare model that allows you to attach the EZClean cyclone filter to the handle, which removes large debris. Thirdly, despite its excellent spaciousness, the vacuum cleaner turned out to be quite light. The scales underneath show 5.3 kg.
Still, this vacuum cleaner cannot be called ideal. If you cannot find fault with durability and characteristics, then you can find a complete set. Together with the device itself, the buyer will receive only two attachments: a brush for the floor and carpets, as well as the usual '2 in 1'. Alas, in the box there is neither a crevice tool nor a turbo brush.
- The handle has buttons for selecting the suction power;
- The vacuum cleaner is durable;
- Roomy dust collector;
- There is a dust container full indicator;
- Low noise level;
- The suction power reaches 440 W;
- A cyclone filter can be attached to the handle;
- The filter is HEPA13;
- Low weight;
- Extra long power cord.
- I would like a smooth power adjustment;
- Few attachments.
Philips FC8383 Performer Compact
As the name suggests, this model is very tiny. However, this did not prevent her from getting a three-liter dust collector, which needs to be emptied quite rarely. The device also includes a 2000 W motor. As for the suction power, it reaches 375 W. In a word, good parameters for such a crumb!
It is curious that this device is able to please with constant suction power throughout the entire cleaning. And the device also received a proprietary ExtraClean nozzle. It provides the most thorough cleaning of all kinds of coatings. Including she copes well with carpets. In a word, it turned out to be a good analogue of the turbo brush supplied with rather expensive vacuum cleaners.
When the time comes, the dust container can be easily removed from under the cover of the device. However, it is possible that this very lightness affected the noise level. It reaches 83 dB. This parameter cannot be called prohibitive, but you could already understand that even in this price segment there are less noisy models.
As mentioned above, the device is very compact. In this regard, one should not be surprised that its weight does not exceed 4.5 kg. As for the cost, usually 5500-6500 rubles are asked for Philips FC8383. For this money, the buyer will receive the device itself, the aforementioned floor and carpet brush, as well as a crevice nozzle.
Unfortunately, this model is still inferior to the competitors discussed above. The fact is that the manufacturer made every effort to save money when creating this vacuum cleaner. In particular, the case here is made of rather low-quality plastic. And you can also find fault with the fit of the hose into the body of the device – the buttons are pressed very tightly, which is why an elderly person may have problems pulling out the hose. But the filter used here is even more upsetting. This is by no means HEPA, its quality does not cause positive emotions. Finally, there is no power adjustment here. If someone is sleeping in the next room, it is better not to turn on the vacuum cleaner. Customers also have complaints about the lateral position of the handle – this is a very strange decision of engineers.
- Low cost;
- Small size and weight;
- Roomy dust collector;
- Decent attachments included.
- High noise level;
- No power adjustment;
- The hose does not rotate well, twists it;
- Cord length – only 5 m;
- A very simple filter is used.
Bosch BGN 21700
Another vacuum cleaner that provides extremely dry cleaning. Unlike some similarly priced models, Bosch BGN 21700 offers power control. The corresponding regulator is located on the body, and therefore must be reached. But on the other hand, the handle does not require batteries, which will delight someone even more.
This model is available in only one color version. On the case of the device, painted in purple, you can find the indicator of the full dust container. You can get the bag out from under the lid without any difficulty. The use of this vacuum cleaner does not cause any difficulties at all. However, you can still make some claims. For example, due to its compact size, the device received a fairly short cord. Because of them, there was no place on the body to store the attachments. It is also impossible not to admit that the vacuum cleaner turned out to be quite noisy. However, if someone is sleeping in the next room, you can reduce the power, as a result of which the noise level will be significantly reduced.
This model has a number of features. Most of all, someone will be surprised by the possibility of working not only with a bag, but also with a container. However, the latter is a very small box, which must be emptied quite often. Also, some of the readers will make a choice in favor of Bosch BGN 21700 due to the almost complete absence of consumables here. Instead of an expensive HEPA filter, it uses a sponge and something like a cloth. All this is easy to clean in soapy water. However, does everyone want to do this? It is much easier for someone to buy a new filter, having spent just a few minutes to replace it.
- Low cost;
- Small size and weight;
- The bag dust collector can be replaced with a container;
- The set includes a good brush;
- Extremely high power;
- There is a power regulator on the body;
- There is a dust collector full indicator;
- There are no consumables.
- The cord and hose are not very long;
- Poor fastening of the hose to the body;
- High noise level;
- Small dust collector capacity;
- Not everyone will enjoy cleaning the filter and sponge.
The best budget vacuum cleaners with aquafilter
This inexpensive vacuum cleaner is a real miracle. While most vacuum cleaners are identical in design, MIE Acqua is a unique product. This device resembles the famous R2D2 from Star Wars. The only difference is that most of the body here is made of transparent material. It is thanks to this that the work of the aquafilter is visible. And this device is also much smaller, which is why there was no place for a capacious container inside it. Its capacity is only 1.3 liters. Well, this is the trouble of all vacuum cleaners that use an aquafilter to collect dust. The fact is that in such devices the most of the internal space is occupied by the water tank. Here its capacity is 10 liters.
Like other vacuum cleaners of this kind, this model only offers dry cleaning. However, there is an additional function that allows the device to collect liquids. This significantly speeds up cleaning in a room where tea or some other non-alcoholic drink is unexpectedly spilled. And the vacuum cleaner is also capable of boasting a power regulator. This allows you to adjust its work for different types of surfaces. Or reduce the noise level if people are sleeping in the next room.
The main disadvantage of this device is related precisely to the power. The fact is that it is only 1200 watts. As for the suction power, it reaches 200 watts at best. Also, not everyone will like the five-meter power cord – when cleaning a large room, it may not be enough.
We will not argue that this model does not do its job well. Oddly enough, the included turbo brush helps out. Even with insufficient suction power, it pulls dust particles even from the depths of the carpet. And when cleaning laminate and linoleum, there are no problems at all.
There are other attachments in the box with the MIE Acqua. The crevice will help remove dust from the battery and the space behind the cabinet. Another attachment will help in cleaning cabinet and upholstered furniture. The buyer will also receive a round nozzle, thanks to which you can clean office equipment. We have already mentioned the accessory for collecting liquid.
This is by far the lightest representative of our rating, if you do not remember about robotic vacuum cleaners. The device weighs all 2.7 kg. But in reality, the vacuum cleaner is still not as easy to use as it might seem. Do not forget that you will pour water into his aquafilter, which will immediately add mass.
As for the most obvious shortcomings, their list is quite large. Firstly, this device cannot be called durable. On the network, you can easily find reviews that talk about the failure of the vacuum cleaner after two and a half years. One gets the impression that the manufacturer decided to save on materials from which the motor and other internals are made. Secondly, this model will definitely not suit the owners of an apartment with carpets. Of course, at first, the turbo brush copes with cleaning them, but in the future, problems will surely begin. Thirdly, during the first cleanings, the vacuum cleaner causes an unpleasant smell.
- The noise level does not exceed 76 dB;
- Small size and weight;
- Rich equipment;
- There is a function for collecting liquids.
- Unpleasant odor during the first cleaning;
- The vacuum cleaner cannot be called durable;
- Very small capacity;
- The cord could be longer.
FIRST AUSTRIA 5546-3
This inexpensive vacuum cleaner has a less memorable appearance. But on the other hand, it is much larger and more spacious. Inside it is a 6 liter aqua filter. There is no doubt that you can vacuum clean three rooms and a kitchen, only after that you will need to empty the corresponding container. By the way, it was not in vain that we were talking about the kitchen. This is where the wet cleaning function comes in handy. As you may have noticed, not every vacuum cleaner that sells for relatively little money provides it! At the same time, the manufacturer added a blowing function, in some cases it will also be in demand.
Inside this device is a 2200 W electric motor. This is a very good parameter, which provides good work not only with laminate, but also with carpets. If only the creators of the vacuum cleaner would be generous with a turbo brush! However, you will have to do without it. However, the package bundle still cannot be called poor. The box with the device contains a metal carpet and floor brush, a crevice nozzle and a brush for upholstered furniture.
This vacuum cleaner can be painted red or gray. There is a dust collector full indicator on its body. However, now only very cheap models can do without it, and it's better not to even think about buying them. The device is connected to the mains by means of a five-meter cord. This is an adequate cable, but nothing more. If it were even shorter, the vacuum cleaner simply would not be included in this collection.
Like most other aquafilter vacuum cleaners, the FIRST AUSTRIA 5546-3 makes a noticeable noise. The manufacturer claims 78 dB, but many buyers think that this parameter is slightly underestimated. Alas, nothing can be done about it. The user will not even be able to reduce the power, thereby reducing the noise level, since there is no corresponding regulator.
- Wet cleaning is available;
- Quite good power;
- Rich equipment;
- Roomy aquafilter;
- There is a blowing function;
- Low cost.
- There is no volume control;
- Not very long power cord;
- The cable is not pulled into the housing;
- Moisturizing is weak.
This vacuum cleaner from a domestic manufacturer has an attractive design and a relatively low price tag. You can buy it in Russian stores for 6 thousand rubles. For this money, you will receive a device equipped with an aquafilter with a capacity of 3.5 liters. Not much, but the vacuum cleaner turned out to be relatively small. Inside the device there is not only an aquafilter, but also a familiar electric motor. Its power is 1800 W. This is enough to provide 400 W suction power. With such a parameter, it is simply impossible to vacuum the laminate and other similar surfaces. That is why the manufacturer took care of installing a power regulator, which is located on the body. It is commendable. But a five-meter power cord will upset someone. Usually, a slightly longer cable is built into such vacuum cleaners.
Otherwise, this is a traditional device that is almost indistinguishable from its more famous competitors. There are two buttons on the VITEK VT-1833 case. They are responsible for winding up the cord and turning on the device. The vacuum cleaner provides exceptionally dry cleaning. Air is thrown out, devoid of any dust, as it passes through five stages of cleaning.
The main feature of this model is the presence of a full-fledged turbo brush in the kit. Usually this accessory is sold for an additional fee. With its help, you can bring almost any surface to perfect condition. If you are afraid of damaging something with them, you can use a regular brush, which is also included in the kit. And the list of accessories doesn't end there! The box also contains a furniture brush, a dust brush and a crevice nozzle.
This budget vacuum cleaner is well worth the purchase. He completely fulfills his 6 thousand rubles. It is not for nothing that there are hundreds of reviews on this model on price aggregators – it is in demand. We have already mentioned the shortcomings, having noted their insignificance. You can also mention only the absence of a compartment for nozzles on the body of the vacuum cleaner. However, only much larger devices possess it.
- Very high power;
- Good filtration;
- There is a power regulator;
- Rich equipment including a turbo brush;
- The Aquafilter cannot be called small;
- Low cost.
- The power cord is not long enough;
- The corrugated tube inside the brush may come off;
- Some structural elements seem flimsy.
Best inexpensive robotic vacuum cleaners
Philips FC8792 SmartPro Easy
As you know, round robotic vacuum cleaners are not the best way to clean in the corners of the room, unless they are equipped with special retractable brushes. That is why many inexpensive devices of this kind are close to square in shape. For example, the inexpensive Philips FC8792 SmartPro Easy vacuum cleaner has it. And this device is also able to please with a memorable design.
For this model in Russian stores they ask about 15 thousand rubles. In this regard, a robot vacuum cleaner can be called a budget cleaner only with a stretch. But rest assured: it fully justifies its cost. The fact is that the device received 23 sensors! This allows him to competently bend around obstacles and move through different rooms. Well, when the battery charge comes to an end, and this happens after about an hour and a half of intensive work, the device returns to the charging station. Here he spends no more than 240 minutes, after which cleaning can be continued. The battery is made using lithium-ion technology, so the capacity will remain the same even after several years.
a This instrument is equipped with a cyclone filter. The inside of the vacuum cleaner holds about 0.4 liters of garbage. It seems that such a dust collector is enough to empty it not after every cleaning, but only once every few days. The product is also able to boast of the UltraHygiene EPA12 filter, thanks to which the air is not polluted at all. You can only regret the lack of a wet cleaning function.
The Philips FC8792 SmartPro Easy robot vacuum cleaner is offered with a remote control. The device supports four driving modes. The device can also move in a spiral and along walls. If limiters were also supported here, there would be beauty in general! Unfortunately, without them, the robot vacuum cleaner is not recommended for people living in their own two-story houses – here it can safely jump down the stairs. As for obstacles, in most cases they are detected normally – this even applies to wires.
- Great design;
- Very soft bumper;
- A large number of sensors;
- Normal roominess;
- Suction power is high enough;
- Low noise level;
- Height does not exceed 6 cm;
- Automatic installation on a charging station;
- Decent battery life
- A good filter is used.
- Limiters of movement would not hurt;
- The manual control option is not very convenient;
- There is no work planner;
- Very high cost.
As you know, it is under the REDMOND brand that the most inexpensive smart devices are produced. In particular, the assortment of the company includes an electric kettle, a thermopot, a multicooker and even a scale. All these devices connect successfully to the smartphone. It could also be used to control the REDMOND RV-R300 robot vacuum cleaner, if it weren't so cheap. To reduce the cost, the manufacturer had to get rid of the Wi-Fi module. As a result, the supplied remote control is used to control the product.
This device is not able to impress with its appearance. This is an ordinary circular vacuum cleaner, the edges of which are equipped with rubber pads. However, the device is designed not to decorate the interior of the apartment, but to carry out perfect cleaning. It copes with this task without serious problems. Although it must be admitted that it is still far from analogues, sold at least twice the price. He has, so to speak, less 'intelligence'.
This device does not have a dust bag. This is logical, it simply would not fit in a device with such a small size. Instead, it uses a container with a cyclone filter. Its volume is 0.35 liters. This means that the robot vacuum cleaner will not be able to carry out any major cleaning. For example, it makes no sense to use it in a room where repairs are being made with an abundance of construction dust. This device is needed to maintain order, not to restore it. By the way, of course, he cannot clean his dust collector on his own. But it will notify the user about its filling with a sound signal.
The product works with simple brushes and a filter. All of these are actually consumables. Fortunately, they are cheap, especially if you order them from online stores in China. The device also includes a 1000 mAh battery. This is where the biggest trouble lies. The fact is that this battery is made using nickel-cupronickel technology. This means that the battery has a fairly high self-discharge. If the vacuum cleaner is not used for a long time, you will have to use the charging station before turning it on. You can also rest assured that the actual capacity of the battery will gradually decrease, providing less and less runtime. By the way, at first, the robot vacuum cleaner will move around the room for 70 minutes. When the time comes, the device will automatically move towards the charging block. The battery charging time is 240 minutes, which seems wildly long by modern standards.
It remains to add that the vacuum cleaner is oriented in space by means of four infrared sensors. Again, in this regard, the product of stars from the sky is not enough. The device weighs 3 kg.
- Not very high noise level (70 dB declared);
- Cheap consumables;
- Low power consumption;
- Automatic installation on the charger;
- Compact dimensions;
- Wet cleaning is available.
- The vacuum cleaner turned out to be not very roomy;
- Few sensors;
- Weak suction power;
- Long battery charging;
- The battery is made using outdated technology;
- Non-peelable advertising sticker on the top cover;
- Too bright LEDs, they can interfere at night;
- Rubber wheels can leave marks on laminate flooring.
Clever & Clean SLIM-Series VRpro
Another budget robot vacuum cleaner. This model is sold for 10 thousand rubles, and its shape is close to square. The corners of the device are rounded and there is a soft bumper along the edges. There is no doubt that such a vacuum cleaner will definitely not damage walls and furniture, even if it crashes into them. And he will do it from time to time, since even 7 sensors is not a very large number. I am glad that not all of them are infrared, the manufacturer has introduced ultrasonic sensors. He promises that with their help, the device will understand the height of the furniture, passing under the bed, if she allows it.
As befits all robotic vacuum cleaners, the device uses a cyclone filter. There is little garbage in such a device, so it is advisable to empty the container after each long cleaning. Also, the vacuum cleaner will definitely not cope with large debris. The fact is that its suction power barely reaches 14 W. It turns out that this is more likely not a vacuum cleaner, but a kind of turbo brush that can move by itself.
If the robotic device discussed above suffered from an insufficient battery capacity, then there is no such problem. We can safely say that 2200 mAh is an adequate parameter for a device with seven sensors. On a full battery charge, it will walk through the entire apartment, no matter how big it is. To be precise, the battery life is 90 minutes. And it is unlikely to decrease in the future, since the battery is made using lithium-ion technology.
It should be noted that this is one of the smallest and lightest vacuum cleaners in our review. Its weight is less than a kilogram, and its height is about four centimeters. That is why you can be sure that it will definitely not get stuck somewhere under the bed. But, of course, such a device could not get any volumetric dust collector. Therefore, he is suitable for the role of an assistant, but nothing more. In addition to this, your apartment should have a regular vacuum cleaner, powered by mains and devoid of electronic 'brains'.
- Long battery life;
- A lithium-ion battery is used;
- The noise level does not exceed 55 dB;
- Ultrasonic sensors are available;
- Tiny size and weight.
- Very small capacity;
- Low suction power.
Xiaomi Xiaowa Robot Vacuum Cleaner Lite C102-00
Electronic equipment from Xiaomi often gets a white case. An inexpensive robot vacuum cleaner is no exception to the rule. Also devices from the Chinese company Xiaomi are able to boast of a low price. Can we say this about the device that got into our rating? It is difficult to answer this question. The fact is that this is one of the most expensive representatives of this review. However, even 12 thousand rubles seem like a penny against the background of the cost of robotic vacuum cleaners from tech giants.
This device turned out to be not as miniature as the previous considered option. The height of this vacuum cleaner is 9 cm and the weight is 3 kg. The decent size allowed the Chinese manufacturer to house numerous electronics inside. For example, there is a full-fledged Wi-Fi module here. It allows you to include a vacuum cleaner in a smart home. Or just start controlling it using your smartphone, on which you need to install the appropriate application.
The device includes a cyclone filter. The maximum vacuum cleaner is able to accommodate 0.64 liters of garbage. As soon as the dust collector is full, a notification will be sent to the smartphone. The device carries out extremely dry cleaning, but this is usual for the vast majority of robotic vacuum cleaners. Despite its size, it is still not capable of sucking in garbage with great force, and therefore it can be compared to an electric broom. With a very smart electric broom, this device can move in a spiral, along walls and some other paths. He also knows how to identify obstacles. But of course not perfect. Sometimes it still crashes into some objects, which is why its edges are equipped with a soft bumper. And also, importantly, the vacuum cleaner is able to independently get to the charging station. He usually does this after the entire apartment has been cleaned. It would be surprising if the charge ran out earlier, because the capacity of the lithium-ion battery installed here is 2600 mAh.
Perhaps Xiaomi turned out to be an excellent robot vacuum cleaner. But why is it not in great demand in our country? This is due to minor flaws that many consumers have heard of. For example, this model does not work well in fully automatic mode. In it, she may refuse to clean the second room, let alone the third. This problem is solved by setting the cleaning time in the settings. Also, the robot vacuum cleaner does not make a room map. Because of this, cleaning is chaotic, which was normal for such devices five years ago, but not now. However, Xiaomi has a robot vacuum cleaner with a laser rangefinder, thanks to which a room map is made without any problems. But this model costs one and a half times more.
- A decent amount of dust collector;
- Normal battery capacity;
- Different principles of movement;
- Control from a smartphone is possible;
- Automatic return to the charging station.
- Doesn't always end up in the second room;
- The cost will not suit everyone.
Now you know that even an inexpensive vacuum cleaner can suit an unassuming buyer. Even such devices now use a very powerful and durable motor. Moreover, even inexpensive robotic vacuum cleaners began to appear, cleaning without the knowledge of a person! In a word, you just have to choose one of the models discussed in this article.
